ACC Offers Tuition Assistance Through Stimulus Funds

Alvin Community College will use funding from the recent American Rescue Plan stimulus bill to offer financial assistance for students.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for people who have been thinking about attending college but were unsure of how to pay for it,” President Dr. Christal M. Albrecht said. “These grants will provide a jump start to anyone who wants to return to college or enter for the first time.”

The college was awarded $8.4 million from the stimulus bill and most of it will go towards tuition assistance or direct emergency grants.

Beginning in the Summer 2021 semester through Spring 2022 or until the funds are exhausted, students in credit programs will be eligible for tuition assistance from the college. Students taking 1-5 credit hours are eligible for $200; 6-8 credit hours qualifies for $300; 9-11 credit hours qualifies for $500 and 12 hours or more qualifies for $600 in assistance.

Dual Enrollment students taking 1-5 hours can receive $100; 6-8 hours qualifies for $200; 9-11 hours qualifies for $250 and 12 hours or more qualifies for $300.

Assistance is available to all credit students whether they are currently enrolled or returning to ACC. Students at all ACC locations are eligible and in all class formats whether in person, online or hybrid.

Students will not have to apply for the assistance and the discount will automatically be credited upon registration.

Registration for the Summer and Fall semesters is now open. Learn more at
